An emerging treasure!

The Havre de Grace Maritime Museum is a tremendous place to spend an afternoon or so and learn all about the history of Havre de Grace, the State of Maryland, the Northeastern region, Harford County, etc. The exhibits are most informative and are growing all the time. There is ho admission fee; just a suggested donation of $2. The place is getting better all the time and great things are planned for the museum. They are working hard to efficintly use all their space and preserve the treasures they have. Any donations are greatly welcome to finance their endeavors. You can find out about John Smith, the War of 1812, Havre de Grace history, and local industry just to name a few items. Soon they will have an exhibit saluting Bethlehem Steel. This place is truly an emerging treasure and I hope the day comes when it becomes a wait just to get inside because of the crowd. .

This is a small museum that explains the history of the Upper Chesapeake and Lower Susquehanna region. It talks about fishing, duck hunting, native americans, lighthouses and navigation. What is really interesting is the display of three petroglyphs that are adorned with native american symbols. They were retrieved before the Conowingo Dam was completed as the area they were found was flooded by the dam. Good place to stop when strolling on the promenade right outside.
